Caseing Virginia

Good afternoon.
This blog is going to be a little busy this aft as I have two posts due to go live at the same time because the new CASEplorations challenge and the new Sketch challenge from STAMPlorations, go live at the same time! This is coming up just before the new sketch challenge.

Here is my CASE of this weeks card.

Here is another view as the gold embossing didn't show up in the first!

This is the card we are showcasing for you to CASE by the wonderful Virginia Lu.

My CASE took various elements from this fab card.
Vellum overlay, gold embossed flowers, kraft greeting panel and grey card.
I didn't have any gold twine so I used a Tim Holtz scribble heart in gold mirror card instead.
The flowers are from STAMPlorations, Bloom Sketches, Blossom Overture and Eclectic Florals, masked to make a bouquet. They were coloured in Copics from the back as they melt the embossing!
The sequins cover up the dots to attach the vellum.

OK that's it, pop back to see the latest sketch at STAMPlorations in a tick.

Joining in at :-

I went diagonal, Die cut, Embossing, Sequins.

Thanks for stopping by. :)
